There aren’t many people in any field who can come close to Bruce Lee’s level. As an actor, as a martial artist, as an entertainer, as a teacher, Bruce Lee changed the martial arts community, he changed film, and he changed the world. “I Am Bruce Lee,” the documentary aired by Spike TV this March, pays respect to the legend with an in-depth portrait of the man and the myth.
Watched by over 1.4 million people on it’s first night, this new doc features guests like UFC president Dana White and MMA champions Jon Jones and Gina Carano who are brought on to discuss the influence of Jeet Kune Do on the modern Mixed Martial Arts scene. Some fans may not realize this, but JKD is, in fact, the foundation of the more open, formless approach to the martial arts practiced by many of today’s athletes.
This look at Bruce Lee’s life and career is one of the most intimate and comprehensive yet seen. Featuring true stories from Lee’s family and friends, rare interviews with the man himself and a mix of footage from film, television and behind the scenes piecing together the story of Bruce Lee’s life, “I Am Bruce Lee” is an absolute must-see for fans, martial artists, and film buffs alike.Martial Arts News
